Friday Monday again and that means that it is time for another episode of the Copyright 2.0 Show.
This episode is a little bit late thanks to the holiday weekend here in the U.S. but don’t think for a moment that means it was a slow episode. We have, among other stories, the largest copyright verdict – ever, an update on some controversial legislation and another copyright tiff between a politician and a gossip blog.
It was a week to remember as the country, and perhaps the world, tried to tie up loose ends for the holidays and this is one podcast you don’t want to miss!
This week’s stories include:
- Jury Finds SAP Liable for $1.3 Billion in Damages in Oracle Lawsuit
- COICA Gets Blocked
- Gawker and Sarah Palin Scrap, Settle
- FilmOn Provides Bad Omen for iviTV
- Judge Wants U.S. Copyright Group to Name Names
- Righthaven Settles a Major Lawsuit
- Ray Charles’ Estate Sues Ray Charles’ son
